Watch MIEN's Psychedelic, Cut Up Clip For 'Odessey'
Did someone say supergroup? MIEN are the next best thing since the Traveling Wilbury's, I'm tellin' ya. Made up of Alex Maas (The Black Angels), Tom Furse (The Horrors), Rishi Dhir (Elephant Stone) and John-Mark Lapham (The Earlies). It's a melting pot of psychedelic expertise.
They released their self-titled debut album earlier this month and have just shared a new video for 'Odessey'. Directed by John-Mark Lapham himself, it's a rather sexy collage of third eye's, women and lyrics. He explained the concept behind the video:
"A friend of mine was called to sneak out a sprawling collection of vintage porn magazines from a local radio DJ’s house who had just passed away. Apparently a church group were on their way to collect his belongings and these magazines had to disappear fast... I got this juvenile idea for how to recycle these 'adult materials' and so with the help of some friends, began cutting up a small portion of the collection (200 plus magazines). I then scanned them and started 'fleshing out' this surreal, seedy little world. I set out to build something that resembles a lost, psychedelic art collage that would look like the love child between Peter Max and Roy Lichtenstein. I almost went a little nutty building this thing frame by frame, but had a blast doing it."
